    Reconfigure the local fax machine to use different configuration
    settings, toggle the ECM state and/or select a slower reception speed.


    To Disable ECM, perform the following steps:



    • Press the <
      or >
      button until the front display reads "Fax Setup".



    • Press the ENTER/MENU button.



    • Press the <
      or >
      button until the front display reads "All Faxes".



    • Press the ENTER/MENU button.



    • Press the <
      or >
      button until the front display reads "Error Correction".



    • Press the ENTER/MENU button.



    • Press the < or > button until the font display reads "Off" and
      then press the ENTER/MENU button to save the setting. (Off disables ECM
      and On enables ECM).

We cannot receive faxes. Gives a busy signal.


Unplug the phone line from the machine. Wait a few minutes then try calling your fax number from a phone while leaving the phone line disconnected from the machine. If it rings fine from the phone, then re-install the phone line to the fax machine. Try making the call again. If you now get a busy signal then the modem in your fax machine has gone bad and is holding the line open. Make sure when installing the phone line you are placing the cord into the "line" port on the machine and not the phone port.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

HP 3050 Laser Jet: I can receive faxes but can not send fax? Help


Hello !
You need to reset fax settings first, go to the "Service" under the printers Main Menu and click on "Restore Defaults"
And then set the following settings under Fax Setup > Fax Receive Setup :

Answer Mode: Automatic
Rings to Answer: 2
Distictive Ring: All Rings

Now go to "All faxes" and change this settings:

Error correction : OFF
Fax Speed: Medium v.17

If you are using a digital line it would be a good idea installing a filter for the line

Hope this works

I found a blog on the Ooma site that said this can be fixed by prefixing your fax send number with 99. There were several comments from people who tired this fix and it worked for them!

Unable to receive fax from HP LaserJet 3050


Hello,

Please make sure the machine is set for auto-receive in machine set up and make sure the phone cord is plugged into the line jack on the machine. If this machine is not on a dedicated phone line the machine (rings) should be set to pick up before the answering machine does.

Cannot send faxes on my all in one hp office jet 5610


If the recipient side is ringing, then the problem is on their end. It sounds like the receiving fax is not set for auto-answering a fax call. A receiving fax machine should pick up and start to attempt the reception even if the fax number is dialed from a normal voice-only telephone; the receiving machine has no idea if the caller is a fax or a regular phone. It should pick up regardless and start to negiotiate the fax (that's the high-pitched whistling sound at the beginning of the call).

Have to be near fax machine to recieve fax


The Rings to Answer feature might not be set to answer after the
appropriate number of rings for your office setup.
If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use
for fax calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically. For
information on how to receive faxes manually, see receive a fax
manually from a phone
on page 48.
If you have a PC modem on the same phone line with your
HP Officejet, check to make sure that the modem’s software is not
set to receive faxes automatically. Modems with this auto fax
receive feature turned on will take over the phone line to receive all
incoming faxes, which will prevent the HP Officejet from receiving
fax calls.
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with
your HP Officejet, you might have one of the following problems:
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow
the HP Officejet to detect fax tones, and the calling fax machine
might disconnect.
Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after
your outgoing message to allow the HP Officejet to detect fax
tones. This problem is more common with digital answering
machines.
The following actions might help solve these problems:
a. Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax.
If faxing is successful without it, the answering machine might
be causing the problem.
b. Reconnect the answering machine and re-record your outgoing
message. Make sure the message is as short as possible (no
more than 10 seconds long), and that you speak softly and
slowly when recording it. Try again to receive a fax.
If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using
a distinctive ring service through your telephone company), make
sure that the Answer Ring Pattern feature on your HP Officejet is set
to match. For example, if the phone company has assigned your
fax number a double ring pattern, make sure Double Rings is
selected as the Answer Ring Pattern setting. For information on
changing this setting, see change the answer ring pattern
(distinctive ringing)
on page 63.
Note that some ring patterns cannot be recognized by the
HP Officejet, such as those with alternating short and long ringing
patterns. If you are having problems with a ring pattern of this type,
ask your phone company to assign a non-alternating ring pattern.
